If you work for a school district or government agency and want to understand the impact of new Government Accounting Standards Board statements, make plans to join our free webinar on Wednesday, May 15 from noon to 1 p.m.

The session is titled “Government Accounting Update, Focusing on School Districts” and will be led by Heather Lewis, CPA, audit manager at Marvin and Company and James Amell, CPA, director of operations at Marvin and Company.

“This webinar will cover new standards that require implementation in 2013 or 2014, proposed changes to the single audit and other issues that specifically impact school districts and government agencies,” said Heather, who has more than 10 years of experience providing auditing, accounting, tax and consulting services to a variety of governmental entities and not-for-profits. “Participants will learn the effect of these standards on their financial statements and what to consider when preparing for their audits so they can file in a timely manner.”
